Publisher Description

Rats are always bigger than you expect Falco, ancient Rome s hangdog investigator, hates sharing a cell with a rodent though being bailed by his old mother is almost as embarassing. His high-born girlfriend can t decide if she wants him, and Titus Caesar s reward for past services is a wet fish. Hoping for a better life, or at least a better apartment, he takes on new clients. On the elegant slopes of the Pincian Hill, three nouveau riche freedmen with two flashy wives are under siege by a clever redhead. Severina Zotica has a foul-mouthed parrot, an odd connection with a snake dancer and a very suspicious past. As he pursues this flame-haired fortune-hunter, Falco finds himself beset by violent rentracketeers, poisoners, and women without consciences who have dangerous designs on him
